VIDEO: LeBron James tackled a fan to the ground after his successful $75,000 shot

The Miami Heat star couldn’t believe Michael Drysch’s half-court effort.

LEBRON JAMES GOT a little over-excited last night after a fan pulled off a half-court shot worth $75,000.

Michael Drysh, a 50-year-old computer technician, incredibly hooked the ball in at the AmericanAirlines Arena and was congratulated by the Miami Heat star – who pounced with a massive hug.

Ecstatic. Euphoric. Wonderful,” Drysch said. “I put some spin on it. Nice way to meet somebody. I can’t believe it.”

Asked what James said to him, Drysch said: “He just said, ‘It was a great shot.’”
